3 About the Data Interoperability extension tutorial The Data Interoperability extension tutorial introduces you to the tools and functionality that are available in ArcGIS when the extension is enabled. It is divided into three sections that guide you through direct-read formats and interoperability connections, quick conversion tools, and the fundamentals of transforming data using FME Workbench. The exercises within each section demonstrate concepts and methods sequentially and therefore should be completed in the order they are presented. They are designed to allow you to work at your own pace without additional assistance using ESRI ArcTutor sample data. You will need about minutes of focused time to complete all the exercises. Tutorial data This tutorial assumes you have installed the ESRI ArcTutor data at C:\arcgis\ArcTutor\Data Interoperability. If not, make the appropriate path changes throughout this tutorial. Ask your system administrator for the correct path to the tutorial data if you do not find it at the default installation path. Using direct-read formats and connections In Exercise 1a: Using direct-read formats, you work directly with a MapInfo TAB dataset in ArcMap. In Exercise 1b: Adding interoperability connections, you create and work with an interoperability connection for Intergraph Modular GIS Environment (MGE) data. Translating data with the quick conversion tools In Exercise 2a: Importing data with the Quick Import tool, you import Geography Markup Language (GML) zoning data using the Quick Import tool. In Exercise 2b: Exporting data with the Quick Export tool, you export geodatabase zoning data to a MapInfo TAB dataset using the Quick Export tool. In Exercise 2c: Automating quick conversion tools with ModelBuilder, you create a model that imports GML zoning data, aggregates features based on specific attributes, and exports the results to GML and MapInfo TAB datasets. Transforming data with spatial ETL tools In Exercise 3a: Getting started with spatial ETL, you create a simple spatial ETL tool that reads Intergraph Modular GIS Environment (MGE) parcel data and loads it into a geodatabase. In Exercise 3b: Transforming data and using Visualizer, you learn the fundamentals of using FME transformers by adding them to the spatial ETL tool you created in "Getting started with spatial ETL." In Exercise 3c: Using source attributes to separate data, you learn how to use spatial ETL to categorize data and generate sets of features with common values. Copyright Esri. All rights reserved. 3

4 Exercise 1a: Using direct-read formats Direct-read formats are used directly from the Catalog tree as read-only datasets. When you add them to ArcMap, ArcScene, or ArcGlobe, all standard map functions are enabled, including attribute tables and labeling functions. Using a direct-read feature class in ArcMap is similar to working with other geodatabase feature classes. You can snap to geometry, substitute symbology, query attributes, and use it with all geoprocessing tools that accept feature classes or layers as input. Complexity: Beginner Data Requirement: ArcGIS Tutorial Data Setup Data Path: C:\arcgis\ArcTutor\Data Interoperability\ Goal: Learn how to work with nonnative datasets in ArcMap when the Data Interoperability extension is enabled. This exercise introduces you to direct-read formats using MapInfo TAB data; other formats supported by the Data Interoperability extension can be used in the same way. Add the data to ArcMap Prerequisite: The Data Interoperability extension must be enabled. 1. Start ArcMap. 2. Click the Catalog Window button on the Standard toolbar. 3. Type C:\arcgis\ArcTutor\Data Interoperability\ in the Location text box and press ENTER. The location is added to the Catalog tree under the Folders Connections heading. 4. Click the subdivisions.tab dataset and drag it into your map. ArcGIS uses spatial indexes to quickly locate features in feature classes. Notice that ArcGIS indexes the dataset the first time you add it to ArcMap and displays a status window. The display duration of the window depends on the size of the dataset; the window may be displayed only for a few seconds for small datasets. 5. Right-click the subdivisions Line feature layer and click Open Attribute Table. The feature layer contains no data. Repeat this step for other feature layers and observe that only the Polygon feature layer contains data. 6. Right-click the folder in the table of contents and click Remove. The dataset is removed from ArcMap. Unlike a native ESRI dataset, when you connect to a MapInfo TAB dataset for the first time, it generates a feature class entry for all geometries supported by the format; other nonnative formats produce similar results. The next section will show you how to purge empty feature classes from the dataset. Purge the empty feature classes To purge empty feature classes from the dataset, refresh the dataset in the Catalog tree. Copyright Esri. All rights reserved. 4

5 1. Click the subdivisions.tab dataset in the Catalog window. 2. Press F5 to refresh the data, or right-click the dataset and click Refresh. 3. Expand the dataset in the Catalog tree. Only the subdivision Polygon feature layer is displayed. Explore the dataset Explore the dataset in ArcMap and the Catalog window to gain insight about working with nonnative data formats when the Data Interoperability extension is enabled. 1. Right-click the subdivision Polygon feature class in the Catalog tree, and click Item Properties from the shortcut menu. 2. Click the Description tab and explore the metadata. 3. Drag the subdivision Polygon feature class into ArcMap. 4. Click the Identify button and select a feature to view the attributes. This completes the exercise. Continue to the next exercise: Exercise 1b: Adding interoperability connections. Copyright Esri. All rights reserved. 5

6 Exercise 1b: Adding interoperability connections Interoperability connections can be used to aggregate files, perform translations on the fly, define a coordinate system, and store format-specific parameters such as database connections and passwords. All interoperability connections are saved in the Interoperability Connections folder. In this exercise, you create an interoperability connection for Intergraph Modular GIS Environment (MGE) parcel data. Complexity: Beginner Data Requirement: ArcGIS Tutorial Data Setup Data Path: C:\arcgis\ArcTutor\Data Interoperability\ Goal: Create an interoperability connection. The MGE format uses standard MicroStation DGN files to store and edit the graphic elements of geographic data. The nongraphic elements, such as feature attributes, are stored in external database tables and linked to the graphic elements via pairs of entity and mslink numbers. Using the Add Interoperability Connection dialog box, you perform the following tasks: Choose the FME reader and specify the data source. Specify the reader parameters for the external database. Define a coordinate system. Create the connection. After creating the connection, you add the dataset to ArcMap, change symbology, and select features by attributes. Copyright Esri.

40 Exercise 3b: Transforming data and using Visualizer A transformer is an FME Workbench object that performs a particular restructuring of features or schema. It is a visual object that you add to your workspace canvas and connect between the source and destination features, or to other transformers. This exercise introduces you to the fundamentals of using FME transformers. You create a spatial ETL tool that transforms MGE parcel data, evaluates the new features with a test clause, and generates output as failed or passed features. Finally, you inspect the output of your workspace without generating data using Visualizer. You complete the exercise by exporting the workspace as a custom format. Using FME Workbench, you perform the following tasks: Add an AreaBuilder transformer to create polygons from the LOT_LINES source feature type. Add a PointOnAreaOverlayer transformer to overlay the LOT_POINTS features onto the polygon features and merge their attributes. Add a Tester transformer to evaluate and count the point features inside each polygon feature. Redirect the output of the workspace to Visualizer and inspect the output of your workspace. Export the workspace as a custom format. Start ArcMap Prerequisite: The Data Interoperability extension must be enabled. Before starting this exercise, you must have completed the previous exercise, Exercise 3a: Getting started with spatial ETL. 1. Start ArcMap. 2.
